About

Welcome to Eric Forcier’s personal website.¬† It contains an assortment of random and not-so-random reflections on everyday life, including: fandom, technology, information use, homebrewing, gardening, gaming, and gnome lore (and more).


Eric is a doctoral candidate at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. His research explores the information behaviour of media fans.

Mansfield College, Oxford, UK, July 2012.

Eric is also an alumnus of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, where he earned a Masters of Arts (MA) in Humanities Computing and a Masters of Library and Information Studies (MLIS).

In addition to topics related to his PhD research, Eric posts about local events in the Edmonton area, pop culture news, and an entire spectrum of hobbies and interests that he probably takes much too seriously.

Eric lives in Edmonton with his partner, Bri, and an ever-increasing host of garden gnomes.
